Every major conductor, and most not-so-major ones, comes around to recording Eine kleine Nachtmusik, but not so many do it as well as George Szell and the Cleveland Orchestra strings. And let’s face it, you won’t find a period-instrument ensemble that plays with anything like this level of polish. The fact is, Szell’s conception of Mozart was not terribly far from “period” sensibilities: restrained use of vibrato, incisive rhythms, crisp ensemble, lively tempos, but also a welcome degree of warmth to the sound and of course incredible ensemble discipline and some of the best players on the planet. And he had real period instruments, meaning performers who owned top quality old violins and bows, not inferior modern reproductions of them. The result is as lovely a performance of Mozart’s perennially delicious Serenade as we are ever likely to hear.

And that’s just the appetizer. The main course is the “Posthorn” Serenade, a massive work in seven movements that still receives few performances in concert on account of its size. Szell was something of a pioneer in playing and recording this music, and as with all of his Mozart interpretations (and Haydn too) he conducted it magnificently. As a bonus, this disc includes lilting performances of the German Dances K. 509 and the Minuet in C K. 409 from Leinsdorf and the LSO, but it’s really Szell’s show. Sony has issued these performances in various compilations over the years; this review is based on the Essential Classics release, which sounds very good, as does the big Szell Mozart box—if you can find it. Doubtless we’ll see other editions in the future, but whatever the source Szell’s Mozart is special and always worth collecting.
